Why this change? I think above all it's the removal of glutens from my diet. Mid January I resumed the "Paleo-Macrobiotic" diet. By mid March the muscles on the outside of my right leg began to "cramp", the consequence of working again after having been atrophied for a long time. My walk is steadier (still with a cane of course), but the muscles on the outside of the leg going into the buttocks are working again. When I took the arm of a friend recently for support, she remarked that I didn't lean on her anymore.
I haven't been totally strict on the diet I describe on this site EXCEPT for having eliminated wheat and glutens. It seems incredible that eating a bit of bread should compromise my nervous system. I think glutens are "toxic" for me and they must inhibit blood circulation to the brain which damages the brain tissue. (If it's any consolation, the great tennis champion Rafael Nadal has also removed glutens from his diet.)
If Glutens are sufficiently toxic for me that they compromise my vascular system, imagine what prescription drugs would do? (Actually, late March when I took antibiotics to treat a bladder infection, all progress stopped.) What if the immunosuppressive drugs prescribed for MS actually worsen the problem by narrowing the veins leading from the brain?
Phlebologists, wake up, we need your help.
